Increase the level of ARC protection by multi-layering garments

When selecting personal protective clothing to be worn in multi-risk environments it is important that not only the outer shell offers the required protection for that work environment. Also the layers underneath must offer extra protection for the worker in case the hazard penetrates the outer layers.

A higher level of ARC protection can be obtained by combining different ARC protective garments together. Please use our ARC Configurator to find out which garments you can combine to achieve the required results.
